    Default SA dagger

    i've been asked to put this one up for your opinions.
    blade and scabberd at first sight seems to be ok, but i have certain doubt about the grip and its insignia.
    first stroke me that it had a leather buffer, not normal on SA daggers, so that took my attention.
    after the buffer had been removed the grip didnt fitted well.
    I think the eagle and Sa pastille are modern and also the grip misses the details that my other SA daggers had.
    Please give your opinion about this one.
    The owner took it off marketplace and wanted to let it check on my advice by the warrelics members, i think no greater expertise can be get then on this forum

    It appears to have been played with, IMO. The wood grip is a fairly good hand-made
    attempt at a replacement, I'd say. It seems to be carved from Indian rosewood
    or perhaps mahogany, where normally these were dyed hardwood or some
    other type of 'local' wood.

    The insignia does not fit perfectly, and the grip is not entirely symmetrical.
    Note that the 'pastille' is rotated slightly to the left.

    I agree with Steve-the grip looks home-made. William

    Who has time to try to replicate these things? Sheesh, does look a little odd in the grip.

    Stay away as what everone else said seems corect. Also its a parts dagger. You have early crossguards with a gau mark, and the blade is transitional(should have nice plated crossguards).

    Great info in this thread. It made me look at the dagger differently.
